Elizabeth Carpenter took this picture of the “blood moon” at 7:06 a.m. in Lyndonville today.

This morning there was a total lunar eclipse when the Earth was positioned between the sun and the moon. That full lunar eclipse has been called a “blood moon” because of the reddish glow.

About 12 hours later, the moon was a bright white. This picture was taken with the flag in the foreground outside Brunner International in Medina.
